Malfeasance, is an illegal act performed by the police     

 

Misfeasance refers to inappropriate behavior on the part of police officers in the course of performing their duties (e.g. improperly searching a home without a search warrant or excessive force during an arrest). Malfeasance refers to illegal acts performed by the police (e.g. accepting bribes or stealing money taken as evidence).      

 

Nonfeasance, is a legal term used in Tort Law to describe the intentional failure to perform a required duty or obligation. It refers to inaction that allows or results in harm to a person or property. Nonfeasance is the omission to perform a required duty or the failure to act when a duty to act existed.

STATE  FAILURE

A failed state is a government that has become incapable of providing the basic functions and responsibilities of a sovereign nation, such as military defense, law enforcement, justice, education, or economic stability.

 

Common characteristics of failed states include ongoing civil violence, corruption, crime, poverty, illiteracy, and crumbling infrastructure. Even if a state is functioning properly, it can fail if it loses credibility and the trust of the people.

The war crimes team of the Metropolitan Police Counter Terrorism Command (SO15) is responsible for the investigation of all allegations of war crimes, crimes against humanity, genocide and torture. It has the specialist skills to conduct an investigation or to decide that an investigation is not feasible. It is well placed to evaluate the process of obtaining the necessary evidence from abroad, the prospects of being able to protect witnesses and to secure their evidence at trial. The Counter Terrorism Division (CTD) of the Crown Prosecution Service, Special Crime and Counter Terrorism Division, has responsibility for prosecuting any such crimes.
 

SO15 and CTD follow guidelines in regard to the investigation and prosecution of allegations of war crimes, crimes against humanity, genocide and torture in order to enable the process for investigations, arrests and prosecutions to be conducted in an orderly and transparent way. These guidelines will be followed when there is a referral to SO15 to investigate a suspect/suspects.

The Met Police War Crimes Unit sits within the Met Police Counter Terrorism Command. It is committed to investigating and bringing to justice anyone who may fall under the UK’s jurisdiction and who is suspected of committing war crimes, crimes against humanity, genocide or torture anywhere in the world.
This approach directly supports the UK Government’s ‘no safe haven’ policy.

Separate guidance has been published in relation to applications for the consent of the Director of Public Prosecutions for the issue of a private arrest warrant for a named suspect for grave breaches of the Geneva Conventions, hostage-taking and torture in accordance with Section1(4A) of the Magistrates’ Court Act 1980. This separate guidance is to be followed when there is an imminent prospect of a suspect arriving in this jurisdiction.
 

Where evidence has been collated by a private prosecutor in anticipation of making an application for an arrest warrant, this is best referred to SO15 in accordance with these Referral Guidelines as SO15 is the most appropriate body to carry out complex investigations of this type.
